Abstract

Human infection with the trematode occurs with a worldwide prevalence of up to 17 million. Sheep and cattle are the normal host. Infection typically results in hepatobiliary disease, but extrahepatic manifestations are occasionally reported. Here, we present the case of a previously healthy 31-year-old Kurdish woman, admitted to hospital with a subarachnoid hemorrhage, eosinophilic meningitis, and lung and liver disease. A diagnosis of infection was made based on strongly positive serology in blood and cerebrospinal fluid. The patient improved following treatment with triclabendazole and prednisolone.
